“[Proton treatment] was "as advertised" - painless and with minimal side effects.”

I’m playing golf with my brother this Sunday. It's my 64th birthday. This birthday - and any birthday, really - is meaningful in many ways. First of all, I am above ground! I am about 4.5 years post proton therapy at Hampton University Proton Therapy Institute (HUPTI) and doing very well.

“I had my last proton treatment on February 21, 2002 and haven't stopped smiling since!”

1994: PSA was 4.6. My doctor gave me Hytrin to lower PSA and keep my blood pressure in check. Blood pressure went up so the doctor stopped Hytrin, and I went back to prior blood pressure medicine. Nothing more said about PSA.

1998: New doctor. PSA 7.8. Had biopsy. No cancer found.

“From my very first call to Loma Linda I have been very pleased with the information and help I received. From finding housing to all aspects of the treatment, everything was very positive.”

I was diagnosed with prostate cancer on September 22, 2000. My PSA was 6 with a Gleason of 4+3, or 7. After proton treatment my PSA was 0.1 and after the four-month check up 0.11. After the second checkup at eight months 0.1, and the same after my third checkup at one year.

"The stranger who overheard my conversation with the nurse and told me about Loma Linda and Proton treatment was Ambassador Joseph Verner Reed, Undersecretary General for the United Nations, former proton patient and member of the BOB!"

A rising psa can be dangerous to your health. Anyone with prostate cancer knows that. Hopefully my testimonial will help people learn how problems can develop if you put too much trust in the wrong doctor.
